About this product
- DescriptionIn Social Memory in Ancient and Colonial Mesoamerica, Amos Megged uncovers the missing links in Mesoamerican peoples' quest for their collective past. Analyzing ancient repositories of kwledge, as well as social and religious practices, he uncovers the unique procedures and formulas by which social memory was communicated and how it operated in Mesoamerica prior to the Spanish conquest. He also explores how cherished and revived practices evolved, how they were adapted to changing circumstances, and how they helped various ethnic groups cope with the tribulations of colonization and Christianization. Megged's volume also suggests how social and cultural historians, ethhistorians, and anthropologists can rethink indigeus representations of the past while taking into account the deep transformations in Mexican society during the colonial era.

An ethnohistorian of colonial Mexico, he is the author of Exporting the Catholic Reformation: Local Religion in Early Colonial Mexico and editor, with Stephanie Wood, of Comparative Studies in Mesoamerican Systems of Remembrance.
